Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease and flour baking sheets.

    Advertisement
  • Melt butter in medium saucepan. Add rest of ingredients and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture starts to bubble.

  • Remove from heat and stir briskly for a few strokes. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls about 4 inches apart on well-greased and floured baking sheet.

  • Bake only 5-6 cookies at a time. Bake for about 5-6 minutes until golden brown.

  • Cool wafers for 2 minutes on baking sheet. Remove carefully with spatula and place over rolling pin, glass, or mug so they curl and become firm. If cookies harden before they can be removed from cookie sheet, reheat in oven again a few seconds to soften.

  • Note: Do one test to check oven temp and quantity of batter. The bigger the cookie, the more fragile. Use 1/2 tsp for test.

This one is a treasure tried it for the first time tonight and crunchy and great as is but am planning to try some variations like adding a bit of ground nuts such as hazelnuts or pecans almonds pistachios or walnuts etc. or even a bit of finely shredded coconut. With the ground hazelnuts it could be heaven to sandwich 2 with Nutella in the middle! Or dipped in chocolate as some others suggested...dusted with cinammon cocoa powder what ever seems good to you...all kinds of possibilities to play with! Some additions may change the consistancy somewhat will have to experiment to find out but when I do I'll report in. Enjoy!!! Read More

These seemed like they had way too much butter. They oozed oil and were so lacy the edges crumbled. I added more sugar and oats halfway through and those turned out much better. Read More

A great and easy recipe. Be careful not to use more than rounded tsp and leave a lot of room (5" or so) on the cookie sheet since they really spread out. This recipe works best when cookie sheet also pre-heated and very lightly greased or sprayed. Can leave on the cookie sheet while you're curling them so others won't harden before you curl. Powdered sugar (after cooling) is a nice touch Read More

Very easy to make. An alternative is to make them double with chocolate as "glue" and serve with ice cream. Read More

Easy to make. Found that 350 for oven temp. worked better less burning(4-5 min.). Cookie can be used as cone or wafer for great fillings or just drizzle chocolate over. Wonderful possibilities with this recipe. Read More

Mmmm these are great! I've been looking for a recipe like this for a long time. I'd had them once before but couldn't remember exactly what they were called. I kept coming up with almond lace cookies but then I came across this recipe. BINGO! Exactly what I was looking for. These are not only pretty to serve they're a tasty treat too! Read More

I just baked these cookies a few minutes ago. I just tried one and it was SO DELICIOUS!!! I think I'll take another reviewers advice and eat another with chocolate and ice cream. At first I tought these would just be like normal oatmeal cookies; I was really surprised to see flat crispy wafers when they came out but now that I've tried them they're even better than oatmeal cookies! Thank you so much for this recipe! Read More

These were a hit recently - very pretty and delicate tastey too! A bit time-consuming to prepare since you only get five on a cookie sheet at a time but worth it! Read More
